his boy is dead
we ended bin laden's right hand man's existence today. it's about time. seems like all that "die for your cause shit" isn't holding up anymore. we captured a TON of the taliban soldiers. if they were hardcore they would keep fighting. just like the iraqi army....they're all punks
bin laden has probably ran halfway across the middle east bynow. he the biggest pus of them all.
i think we should load all the debris from the WTC into frieghter planes and drop it all over afgahnistan. the WTC strikes back!!

Taliban leader to leave
Senior bin Laden aide reportedly killed near Kabul
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP-CP) -- In twin blows to the Taliban and al-Qaida, the regime's supreme leader was reported ready Friday to abandon his home base of Kandahar in southern Afghanistan.
Also on Friday, U.S. officials disclosed that Osama bin Laden's military chief may have been killed in a U.S. air strike near the capital Kabul.
The developments came as U.S. warplanes struck the Taliban's two remaining strongholds, Kandahar and the northern city of Kunduz, on the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
If confirmed, the death of bin Laden's military chief Mohammed Atef would deal a serious setback to the al-Qaida terrorist network.
Its Taliban protectors are already reeling from sweeping territorial losses and their flight from Kabul this week. U.S. officials said the Taliban had lost control of more than two-thirds of Afghanistan.
Atef was a close confidant of bin Laden, and his daughter was married to bin Laden's son. U.S. officials suspect him of involvement in the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S., which triggered the military confrontation.
One U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Atef is believed to have died during a U.S. air strike earlier this week. Another official said Atef's body has not been located.
The report that the Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar was ready to leave Kandahar would be a dramatic development, if borne out, amounting to Taliban abandonment of the city that was its birthplace. U.S. military officials were skeptical.
"I don't believe it," said Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Stufflebeem, in Washington. "I think that our forces who are there are still operating under the assumption that it is a hostile environment."
The Pakistan-based Afghan Islamic Press agency said Omar had agreed to leave the city within 24 hours and would head for the mountains, turning it over to local leaders from Pashtun tribes, ethnic kin to most of the top Taliban leadership.
Under the deal reported to have been reached with tribal leaders, control of Kandahar would pass to Mullah Naqibullah and Haji Basher, two former commanders of Afghan resistance forces in the war against Soviet invaders.
An official of Harkat ul-Mujahedeen, a Pakistan-based group allied with the Taliban, said Omar was pressured by local leaders to leave the city and end U.S. attacks.
Reluctantly, Omar accepted the deal Friday night in return for safe passage out of the city, the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Hamid Karzai, a Pashtun leader, told CNN that Taliban leaders would be offered amnesty if they surrendered and gave up their weapons. If they leave Kandahar, he said, they would have nowhere else to go.
Contradictory reports about conditions inside Kandahar had swirled in past days. U.S. officials had said there were reports of street fighting, but arriving refugees and even a leader of Pashtun anti-Taliban forces had said the Taliban appeared to retain their grip on the city.
U.S. planes bombed Kandahar again overnight, continuing a pattern of relentless strikes on the city and its environs. The Afghan Islamic Press said the Taliban's foreign ministry office was wrecked, along with a mosque located in the eastern part of the city.
It claimed at least 11 civilians were killed, but that could not be independently confirmed.
In the north of Afghanistan, fighters from the northern ******** were laying siege to the city of Kunduz, backed by U.S. air strikes. "Kunduz is at a standoff," Stufflebeem said.
The defenders include an estimated 2,000 to 3,000 foreigners loyal to bin Laden. They are much less likely than Afghan Taliban to simply negotiate a surrender or slip away.
Northern ******** officials said there had been no breakthrough in negotiations for the city's surrender.
